Name: Kevin Bletzer

Position: Linebacker

Number: #49

Year: Junior

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 213 lbs.

Hometown: Medfield, MA

2016 Stats: Bletzer was a key member of the special teams unit last year as he recorded 110 plays on the unit. Bletzer’s best game of the year was against Virginia Tech where he notched a career high five tackles.

2015 Stats: After taking a redshirt year Bletzer earned a spot on special teams and appeared in 12 games.

2017 Projections: Bletzer is in the mix at the SAM linebacker spot behind Sharrief Grice. While Grice might be the favorite to win the job he is hardly a lock and Bletzer will have every opportunity to win the job in summer camp. If not, Bletzer will certainly be a key member on special teams once again

How'd He Get Here: A two-star recruit out of Catholic Memorial, Boston College was Bletzer's only claimed offer. Recruited by Ryan Day.
